The challenge of youth employability in Arab Mediterranean countries
The role of active labour market programmes
The European Training Foundation (ETF) has provided regular input to the European Commission (DG Employment) throughout the process of structured Euro‑Mediterranean policy dialogue on employment. It has done so via three employability reports presented in 2007, 2009 and 2011 to the Euromed High‑Level Working Groups on Employment and Labour in preparation for the ministerial conferences. In 2013, as part of this process, the ETF launched another round of analysis on employment policies pursued by Arab Mediterranean countries (AMCs). The focus of these country reports has moved on from the... analysis of labour market trends and challenges to the mapping of existing employment policies and active labour market programmes (ALMPs). This report aims at further promoting the exchange of experiences between countries in the region, and fostering evidence‑based policy making. It was presented at the Policy Leaders’ Forum for Ministers from AMCs on 20 November 2014 in Turin.
